This issue devotes itself to the galaxy of Mayors who have served Rutland. Pictures of the previous six Mayors of 1949-1982 are featured on the cover, their names listed within.
Opening with a brief biographical sketch of the first Mayor, John Abner Mead, elected in 1893 with an accompanying picture, it includes a total listing of Rutland’s Mayors with photos and biographies, terminating with Wayne N. Temple in 1903; a grand total of 28 Mayors.
Two Book Reviews conclude the issue. The first is called A Practice of Mountains, featuring Andre Mead Lawrence, at the time the world’s fastest woman skier, reviewed by Kyran McGrath, himself the author of Woodstock Anthology and former owner of the Inn at Long Trail at Pico Peak.
The second, an in depth review of Vermont, A Bicentennial History written by Charles T. Morrisey is authored by F.P.E.
